Clara and the Nutcracker
First given as royal gifts by the Russian Czars, the magnificent egg designs created by Peter Carl Fabergé hold an honored place among the world’s most valuable collectibles. Now the opulent beauty of these Russian treasures inspire a new Heirloom Porcelain® musical egg adorned with artwork by the Russian Palekh masters and lavish 22K gold and jeweled accents, recalling the beauty of Fabergé’s designs. Taking its theme from the beloved Russian ballet “The Nutcracker,” it is a tribute to Russian art in all its forms.
At the heart of this exquisite design are Clara and her Nutcracker Prince crafted of enameled pewter and adorned with gleaming 22K gold and sparkling faux gems. The base is encircled by a masterwork depicting the magical tale of “The Nutcracker.” Shining 22K gold, sparkling crystal jewels and more classic ballet scenes adorn the egg’s exterior. It plays Tchaikovsky’s beloved ballet theme, “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.”
Measures about 5 inches high.
